Podcast Number 14 – Podcast ver. 14.2 – January 17 2009 (43.5 MB, runtime 38:02)
As we begin 2009, we discuss New Years Resolutions. Some ideas I discuss are: Getting your license or upgrading your current license, trying a new mode, try out contesting, volunteer in your community, join a radio club, form a radio club at your work and become an elmer.
I introduce you to Christopher Dixson, K1PRD and read you his “Off the Grid: Eighty Hours without Commercial Power”. Chris wrote this document based on his recent experience during the New England ice storm of 2008. You can visit his website at www.dixson.org You may also download his write-up, including his checklists here.
During our featured website segment I introduce you to Patrick Maloney, N2POT. Patrick has developed a series of iPhone Apps called Amateur Radio Prep: Technician, Amateur Radio Prep: General, and Amateur Radio Prep: Extra. You can find Patrick’s iPhone apps on the iTunes Apps store. For additional information visit Patrick’s website www.patrickjmaloneyllc.com
As always, thank you for listening and thank you for telling your friends.
